K-REV Christian Radio Announcers Michael and Jacob—stars of the
famous Mike and Jake’s Morning Show—has an embarrassing moment.
(K-REV Announcers Mike and Jake are seated at an
angled table, stage-left with 2 microphones
facing them on the table. Both
Mike and Jake are wearing large headphones covering their ears.)
You’re listening to the Mike & Jake’s Morning
Show on the All-new Digital Family-friendly Christian Radio Network
K-REV. Today we are talking about
forgiveness. What K-REVelation do people have about forgiveness?
I think I know what most of our listeners
think about forgiveness, Mike.
Okay, Jake, I’ll bite.
What do most of our listeners think about forgiveness?
They like it.
They ask for it all of
the time, so they must like it.
You mean when one of our listeners calls in, they say
Yessiree, Mike! They say, “Forgive me for
bothering you.” So they
must like it.
see, so you see it that they are using it as a way to soften you up so
they can get on the air?
Exactly, Big Mike.
Mike? I need to ask you something.
Anything for my
Please forgive me for calling you Big Mike.
And I respond to you with a big, “I forgive you, little Jake.”
(laughs out loud)
We are going to break now for a
major announcement from K-REV’s Chief Executive Officer. (pauses)
Jake, did you hear about what the CEO did, and why’s he’s stepping
Actually, no I haven’t heard a thing.
I was up late last night reading a book and then I was almost late
to work this morning.
(leans over, almost whispering) The
CEO was caught taking a bunch of the donations people have made to K-REV.
You saw his new Mercedes?
Actually I think I’ve seen
two of them.

Then, you wanna hear the most juicy

Gentlemen, you were still live on the air.
I’ve switched it over to the CEO’s announcement.
Looks like Jake forgot to switch over to the
CEO’s recording. After your
show today, I need to see both of you in my office.
MIKE and JAKE
I am letting you finish this show.
I am not so sure about tomorrow.

You’re listening to the Mike & Jake’s Morning Show on the
All-new Digital Family-friendly Christian Radio Network K-REV.
Well, Jake, how about that announcement from our CEO?
We’re expanding K-REV into the biggest radio market in the
country—New York City. Isn’t
I am pumped.
I heard we get to go there and do a live show.
do? That’s awesome.
Mike, I think you have something to tell me and our wonderful,
Oh, you mean about the little
conversation we had before the CEO’s Announcement?
It wasn’t all that big of a deal, I was just—
Come on, Mike. We were just
talking about forgiveness. Mike, look at me.
What do you
Come on, just look at me.
are you doing?
Mike, please forgive me.
I was wrong to let you tell me all those things without stopping
you. Please forgive me for not
switching over to the CEO’s announcement.
admirable of you, Jake. In
fact, it’s kind of humbling.
Please forgive me for telling you all this gossip.
Gossip is evil.
Yes sir, it is.
I turn it around, and call it “sipping on the goss.”
Goss means ‘spit’.
The Bible says in Proverbs 20:17:
Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall
be filled with gravel.
So the gossip we partook in tasted sweet at first, but now I
feel like my mouth is filled with gravel.
It was definitely
an embarrassing moment.
I have an idea!
We need to humbly go to our boss and ask for mercy.
